Rutgers utilizes bizarre strategy on first drive of 2022 season
Rutgers football is back, but things are not off to a great start for the Scarlet Knights.
It started right out of the gate with starting quarterback Noah Vedral sidelined. As a result, the Scarlet Knights used 3 different players under center on the first 3 plays of the 2022 season.
Needless to say, it didn’t work out too well with Rutgers punting quickly after a 3-and-out.
Rutgers uses three quarterbacks on the first three plays … and here comes Adam Korsak to punt.

The Scarlet Knights finally settled on Gavin Wimsatt under center moving forward. He generated a solid drive with Rutgers rolling all the way down inside the 10-yard line.
Unfortunately, after setting up a 1st-and-goal situation, Rutgers went backward. Offensive pass interference, holding, an incomplete pass, a false start and a sack on 3rd-and-goal led to the team punting on a 4th-and-goal situation.
That is not the kind of start you are looking for.
Rutgers after getting to the 8 yard line:
Holding (also illegal formation)
Sack (holding penalty declined)
Should prob fix that.
